I've never been one for football. I went to a couple games in highschool, just because my friends went and it was the thing to do. And, as embarrassing as this is, in all my years at BYU I think I only went to 2 football games. Shameful, I know. It just seemed so boring-- running up and down the field, jumping on each other, pass the ball, throw the ball--it was nothing compared to hockey. Growing up in Michigan, I was a big fan of the Detroit Red Wings, actually, I was a big fan of the fighting involved in hockey. I like watching contact sports. Jason and I used to faithfully watch boxing and the UFC when we had Dish. Well, football isn't nearly as much of a "contact sport." There are less injuries, but, to compensate and hold my attention, it actually does take talent to play. During the Cowboys/Bears game I was particularly impressed by Tony Romo, Dallas' quarterback. He threw that ball dead-on during some pretty sticky situations, and I found myself leaning in towards the TV, hoping the play would pan-out.
Ok, so I've confessed. Now I have to pick a team to root for on the quest to the SuperBowl!
